Notes

First I Second That Emotion

Source / Mastering Notes:
- There were multiple edits made for reel changes. Some were crossfaded and others were edited out.
- Cuts were during I Second That Emotion, In Dark Star, during the Jam at the end of GDTBFB and
in the beginning of Good Lovin'.
- There are many audible conversations between Ramrod and others between tunes.
Which may indicate that this is a monitor mix.
- A buzz is intermittent in the right channel that was reduced Steinberg Denoiser.
- Speed adjustments were made for the first set as the beginning portion was fast
and after the cut in I Second That Emotion was slow.

Subject: That's Ned Lagin on the piano NOT Pigpen
Pigpen's playing the B3, but the piano here is all Ned Lagin. This is, in fact, the first Dead show he sat in for in its entirety. (He had played with them previously on "Dark Star" on Nov. 5th and 8th, 1970.) Not only is the piano playing not at all Pigpen's style, but Ned and I talked about this show. It was a lysergic evening...

Subject: Good Stuff
There maybe only 2 Pigpen tunes but that Good Lovin' is a powerhouse. Aside from that my favourite here is the NFA>GDTRFB>NFA which is just incredible. A gorgeous but fairly short Dark Star as well. Outside of that, many of the performances were nothing special by 71 standards, especially the PITB which didn't really grab me. Overall a good show though and worth a listen.

Subject: Pig on Piano
That's Pigpen on the piano

and Pigpen on B-3.

He plays both in this show.

It's a good one all in all. Especially love the first "I Second That Emotion" -- crunchy guitar chords.

Subject: Ned Lagin on background piano?
I am not sure, but that could be Ned Lagin on occasional piano in the background..he'd begun a relationship with the band a year before, instigated by a letter he sent them, and appeared on "A.Beauty" as well, and he sat in on 2/18/71. Certain Dead books list him as meeting the band at M.I.T. or was it Worc. Poly. Tech, so it's very concievable he's stting in here on a Boston show..at any rate someone's playing VERY cautious piano in the background(see Playin)

Subject: Only two Pigpen tunes?
Only two PigPen Tunes the whole night?! Perhaps he wasn't feeling well?
